New year, new posts – Best ‘Betes Blogs January 2013

In case you missed it, I am in the process of moving across the country. As in, at this very moment I am writing this post from a hotel room in Jackson, Mississippi after almost 12 hours of driving riding today. I thought I’d have more time to write in the truck, but two cats with us in the cab does not leave much lap space. So here’s the short and sweet list of nominated posts.

Best Use of Humor

Reva has something she just can’t live without while Karen is freaking out.

Best Use of Photography

April takes freezing cold beautiful pictures.

Best Advocacy

Anybody want to ride a bike with Victoria?

Best Reference to a D-Celebrity

It seems like the past few weeks have been primetime for horrible characterizations of people with diabetes in movies and TV. According to Cara, “Do No Harm” might be the most inappropriately named TV show this season.

Best Story of a D Meet-up

Is it odd that Scully makes me want to move to Canada just so I can go to Slipstream events?

Best non-D Related Post

I want to find a love like Meri and Ryan’s.

Best Post by a Type 1

Must read posts by Scott and Kate (guest posting on Six Until Me).

Best Post by a Type 2

Rachel writes about peace.

Best Post by a Type Awesome

I love that both of the posts nominated about Type Awesomes are about diaversaries. One family celebrates one year and another celebrates six.

Best Post by a LADA/ Type 1.5/ Not otherwise specified

Katie shares with us an overdue update on her life. Spoiler alert: insulin.

Best story of a D-mistake

Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally. Or possibly Marie’s Aunt Sally.
